Superbowl Munchies : Quick and Easy Piggies in a Blanket

Let's gat back to basics. Piggies are the ultimate party food and you just can't stop eating them. I have not seen them much in parties this century, but back in the 1960's these snacks were king.

I use Italian bread crumbs instead of flour when I roll our the dough. This add extra zing to the taste and complements the taste of the wieners nicely. You can also use smoked sausage links.

The great thing about piggies is that you can eat them hot, luke warm, or room temperature. They also go great in your lunch box if you should have any leftovers. At least once a month I make these for my son to take to school for lunch.

  • 1 lb ball of pizza dough, available in any grocery store
  • 1/2 cup of Italian bread crumbs
  • 1 package of mini weaners or mini smoked sausage links for more flavor

  1. Spread bread crumbs on your bread board to kee the dough from sticking
  2. Punch the dough down with your fingers, then roll it out with a rolling pin. Continue rolling until the dough is no more than 1/4 inch thick.
  3. Cut the dough into long inch wide strips.
  4. Roll each wiener in 1 layer of dough. Moisten the dough with a few drops of water along the seam to seal.
  5. Place rolled piggies on an oiled cookie sheet.
  6. Bake at 350o for 30 minutes.
  7. Serve with Dijon Mustard for dipping.
